Bus services for students travelling to and from St Patrick’s are provided by Rover Motors Cessnock and Hunter Valley Buses.
For information regarding bus routes and travel, including timetables see below:
In areas where there is no public transport, eligible residents may receive a subsidy for transporting their students to school by private vehicle.
Students access the school site via three entry points on Gregory Road. The Hall Gate and Cemetery Gate are the designated access areas for students travelling by car, in the company of an adult. Parents are encouraged to use the roadside and hall carpark according to the signage provided, to ensure the safety of all.
Parents must not stop or park in the bus zone during the signposted hours.
Students are dismissed according to a staggered schedule to help ease congestion in the area. The following process is used:
Parents/caregivers collecting from Hall Gate are instructed to exit Gregory Rd via Robert Rd. Please DO NOT turn right from the car park.
Parents parking on Gregory Rd or Station Lane to collect from Cemetery Gate are reminded that the buses need considerable room to turn.
Please DO NOT impede the buses by parking within 10m of the corners of Robert Road, Gregory Road and Station Lane.
